Greetings from cyberia media
cyberia media is a full service multi-disciplinary production & design studio in Santa Monica, Ca.
Principal/Director Richard Levine, founder, began his career as an award-winning independent filmmaker whose work has been shown at the Berlin Film Festival, MOMA NY, the Musée Contemporaire & Beaubourg in Paris, among other venues. His film “War Stories” was featured at the Whitney Museum’s Retrospective of 20th Century American Art.

As a music video director for Warner Brothers, Sony & Universal Music, Richard created landmark videos for the Smiths' "How Soon is Now," Lionel Richie, Suzanne Vega & many others. Richard then entered the world of advertising, directing the world-famous Nike Beatles’ “Revolution Kids” commercial, along with spots for Miller Beer, NFL and Coke. He was Production Designer on Robert Altman’s Emmy–nominated television film, "Black & Blue." In 1998, becoming fascinated with the possibilities of digital media, Richard formed cyberia media.

Principal/Writer Jacqueline Austin’s work includes feature films, short films, books and media, and a Pulitzer nomination for feature article writing. Her bibliography includes short films for the Getty Museum; a feature film ("Great Wall Great Love", Turquoise Pictures); a pioneering computer game ("The Colonel’s Bequest", Sierra), books ("Angel Child", Pocket Books) and hundreds of articles for newspapers and magazines (New York Times, LA Times, Village Voice, Cosmopolitan, others). Her education includes degrees in writing and art from Yale, Hunter and Columbia; certification in screenwriting and design; and ongoing coursework in interface design, media design and gamification.
Art Director/Creative Director/Designer/Illustrator William Luke Miller graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California at the top of his class with Distinction and Honors. Will has been with cyberia media since 2002 and has won over 40 design awards. His work has been featured in multiple publications and in toy/hobby stores around the world. He has won creative competitions by Dark Horse Comics and Upper Deck, and was even national champion for Upper Decks fantasy sports competition.
When Will is not working or drawing, he can be found among his ever growing collection of dust (on his precious collectibles), watching Star Wars with the family, or checking sports scores (Go Broncos).

Video Director/Photographer Tamar Levine brings to cyberia media a unique photographic vision, broad expertise with the digital tool box & a very current, articulate sense of design.

Recent awards include PDN Photo Annual (2011); ADC Young Guns 9 (2011); Santa Fe Portrait Exhibition and Awards (2012); and Finalist, New Exposure by Vogue, REDx, and Bottega Veneta (2012).

Editor Darren Ayres caught the filmmaking bug at age eleven.  While attending film school at Rochester Institute of Technology, he was nominated for a student American Cinema Editors award. Upon settling in Los Angeles, he found work with Sony Pictures High Definition Center and Technicolor Creative Services.  Here, he built up a solid technical pedigree to match his strong passion for editing and storytelling, making him invaluable in the ever-changing realm of post-production.
He has edited two independent feature films for 20th Century Fox Home Video and Anchor Bay Entertainment, worked on numerous music videos and commercials, and just finished producing and editing a feature documentary entitled, “Palisades Parade” with director, Sarah Kelly. In addition to his work at cyberia media, Darren currently is directing and editing his first feature documentary.
